Used this many times. Carry an immersion heater, but sometimes settle
for the hotel's Mr.coffee. Way better than a blade, much lighter than
a Zass. Probably do OK for anything with a paper filter.

Ther handle / cap slips off, and the cylinder fills with beans that
are collected in a bottom cup-like holder that slips out. Re: Ian's
comment: it grinds a bit slower than my Zass, and I agree, a bother
for a "pot" of coffee. But when lined up against the alternatives
that I might toss into a carry-on bag, and the fact that it's just
right for the Aero one or two cup, it's the best compromise I've
seen.

"These grinders are an excellent way to grind your coffee fresh while
hiking, canoeing, camping, tailgating or even commuting."

While commuting? Perhaps they need one that plugs into the cigarette
outlet for hands-free use. :)

I tried both the Traveller II grinder in the OP and the LEXAN press
from GSI.

Neither are recommended. The Traveller II grinder takes forever to
grind a pot of coffee. At best it is useful for a cup. The 'filter' on
the press doesn't.
